Subject: Classical-ish mini jam?
Subject: bread crumb
Subject: Was this the first time this taped
Subject: Sleeper show for sure
Brent rips it up on Rooster with his nasty scat too. Esau is great and the China Cat is very happening, better of the two, and then they do a full out INYR.
Set two starts off with a strong Touch and the Playin' is nice into an amazing Terrapin. This is where this set takes off. The ending of this show is exceptional. I always loved Wheel> Playin' Reprise and then into a smokin' GDTRFB into a HUGE Sugar Magnolia.Wow! Jerry is ripping it up at the end and then the SSDD is incredible. Phil is dropping bombs all over the place.
Satisfaction is raging and a perfect choice on this night of great music.
Subject: Like it was just yesterday....
So how will I be celebrating the 26th anniversary of my first show?? The Dead in NYC, of course!!!
Subject: better than 4/26...
The post-drums segment of this show is astounding: as mentioned the GDTR is unbelievable. A long-standing question for me and a couple friends: what *is* that jam out of The Wheel? Sounds like a classical motif; I doubt it's completely improvised.
Subject: It's still foggy...
Subject: 5 stars for Goin' Down The Road...
One of those rare moments when Jerry goes liquid. Listen to the lead that starts at 3:50. Jerry strumming and leading in Sugar Mag not bad either.
IMO...this is a perfectly good audience tape. Sounds exactly like a copy I traded for in the parking lot at Ventura w/ some east coast heads.
It always was about SA-90 and XLII aud tapes for me. Just like you were there...
Subject: Nothing A little Patience and an EQ wouldn't help
Subject: not so bad
Subject: horrible sound
Subject: See the 26th for the real deal
After the Jack Straw the guy behind me starts yelling "Hey Bobby, play Satisfaction!". He must have yelled it in my ear a dozen times. I finally turned around and said to the guy, "Dude, this is the Dead, not the Stones."
I thought I was so cool. :)
Honestly, the Satisfaction encore is the only highlight of this show. See 4/26/83 for the real deal.
